Where to Brunch This Weekend: Weathervane Cafe

Scuffed woods, lived-in loveseats, quirky artwork and all, Weathervane Cafe looks every inch the cozy community coffeehouse. And it is. Occupying an old, green-shingled home at the edge of City Park, it offers a blackboard menu comprised of just what any cafe habitué would expect: simple but spot-on breakfasts, salads, sandwiches and the occasional soup du jour (like curried tomato), as well as scones and cookies from a local baker and coffee from Corvus (currently opening its own espresso bar at 1740 S. Broadway).

But even the most jaded java junkies must have done a double-take upon glimpsing the "Kafkaccino" that co-owner Alex Dalton posted on Instagram yesterday, citing area artist Travis Hetman as his collaborator. And we're right there with them; rest assured, in fact, that we've been inspired to head over this weekend and kick back on a couch with a steaming cup of caffeine and our own dog-eared copy of Franz Kafka's collected stories. We'll skip "The Hunger Artist" while downing our chocolate-pretzel brownie, however.
